I think I'll start practicing with the Vikings! ;-D

And still will keep an eye on Miami, Green Bay and Baltimore. (perhaps Washington as a far sleeper)

You realize you can use any playbook, right? You're not limited to that team's playbook.

I wouldn't be too worried about the Vikings Defense. Their d-line will be awesome with udeze, K. Williams should be rated in the 80's in '05, and Hovan is low 90s. Winfield and williams should be good enough at corner. Chavous was a pro bowler, so I expect high 80s-low 90s from him. You can pass on offense a lot with moss and bennett on plays out of the backfield.

Good Luck!

It really depends on the style you play. If you love to air it out then the Vikings and maybe the Saints, but the Vikings the number 1 pass offenses in the game. If you love to pound the run, then I would go with Baltimore, with Jamal Lewis and the o-line, should the farely well, or Redskins with portis and the o-line to help, they also got speed at wrs. If you like a balance attack then Eagles,Seahawks, and Dolphins. In your case I would go with the Dolphins, since your not high about your defense capabilties, and two good wrs and speed/power back in Williams should do good for you, along with the top 2 cbs in the game.

I'd say go with the Bengals :-b You got Rudi Johnson, Chad Johnson, Peter Warrick, oh and plus you can make Palmer good :-/. Their defense is actually pretty decent this year. I would probably use them because I'm a homer so ya ;-D

Have you ever tried using a team with a stud receiver, and using that player like mad? When my buddies have tournaments, the hot teams are the Bills (Moulds catches everything, solid D) Vikings (Moss catches EVERYTHING) Colts (Manning to Harrison works like mad). I like the Vikings idea, and i know from lots of experience the more you throw to Moss, the better the chance you win. Seriously, hes so hard to stop.

Well it depends on the level of competition he's playing. Really good players will completely shut you down if you focus on one WR.

i tried that but my friend just takes the corner who is covering owens (this was 03) and blankets him and sets up double teams. i prefer a spread out attack like the saints or colts
